We’re on a roll, another new beer will be live on-site from FRIDAY 2nd OCTOBER-
Schöne Eiche is our first ever Marzen, a traditional Bavarian beer of choice for Oktoberfest – an amber lager. This style is rarely brewed in the UK, which makes it all the more special. Over 50% of the grist is made up of Munich Malt, providing a rich malty taste and a lovely amber colour. Vienna malt gives it a biscuity base and of course, a lot of German Pilsner Malt. All the hops used are traditional German hops, producing a mild bitterness. There is depth and fullness plus a slightly sweet finish.
Schöne Eiche meaning Beautiful Oak in German, is a celebration of the many oak trees which adorn our park. Nothing shows off their brilliance more, than the changing of the seasons. National tree both here and in Germany.
We also must give two special mentions about the imagery used on our can. Firstly, to Tim Clifton who caught this amazing shot in Richmond Park. ‘Red deer under red oak in autumn.’ Thank you for allowing us to use this picture which fitted in so perfectly with our autumn amber beer.
Secondly, we must thank the Friends of Richmond Park, without them we would never have found this picture. It’s the main October image for this year’s Richmond Park calendar and the beautiful 2021 calendar, with 45 wildlife and landscape images, is now on sale from https://www.frp.org.uk/shop/
Keep an eye on the web-shop.
